Museums and other cultural institutions have unique building use patterns and characteristics, which can present energy challenges not often encountered in other public buildings. Limited research on the sector’s energy use patterns and greenhouse gas emissions makes energy benchmarking difficult. The presenters in this session will describe recent research on this building type and discuss how it is shaping current practices addressing Climate Action in the cultural sector. The session will feature Case Studies on the efforts of cultural institutions that have committed to reducing their carbon emissions.
